about iwishthiswas.com

I Wish This Was is a participatory public art project that explores the methods of civic engagement. Inspired by the limitations of community meetings and the abundance of abandoned buildings, Chang posted thousands of “I wish this was _____” stickers on vacant buildings across New Orleans to invite residents to easily share their hopes for these spaces. The stickers are vinyl and can be easily removed without damaging property. Designed in the style of Hello-my-name-is tags, the installations provide a recognized trope for passersby to participate and consider the evolving identities of the built environment.
